, were george zimmerman's injuries really life threatening? that was one of the key questions raised today in his second-degree murder trial. today a medical examiner testified that the injuries mr. zimmerman allegedly received from trayvon martin that night were, quote, insignificant, a claim that could undermine his claim of self-defense. also today, the lead investigator testified mr. zimbabwe may have profiled trayvon martin the night he shot him, acting out of, quote, ill will and spite. and jurors heard a tv news interview george zimmerman gave nearly a year ago in which he said he had no regrets about his decisions the night of the shooting. a dramatic day in court, but perhaps the key testimony came from that medical examiner who did not perform the autopsy on trayvon martin, but who was asked to review the evidence by the state. she offered her expert opinion on mr. zimmerman's injuries. >> are any injuries in this photograph life-threatening? >> no. >> why not? >> he has no loss of consciousness whatsoever. he didn't have to go to the hospital. he went to a clinic. >> are a
